Chester County Historical Society Museum

Chester County Historical Society Museum houses notable collections of Native American artifacts, firearms from the Revolutionary era to the present, period costumes and relics from the Civil War, and a recreated late 18th-century parlor of Samuel McAliley in a 1914 jail behind the county courthouse. The museum also has the Henry O. Nichols Photography Collection with images spanning seven decades (1911 - 1991). The Chester County Historical Society is proud of our restoration of four 10 pound Confederate Made Parrott Guns. Two can be seen downtown, one is fireable and used for events, the other was donated and can be seen at the State Museum in Columbia! Blue Star Museum!
